Chronic Disease

At Fetner & Hartigan, we look at each patient as a whole person and your overall health is important to us. Like your eyes, the mouth can often be the first place to show signs of systemic disease.

If you have a chronic disease such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, Sjogren’s Syndrome, HIV, or lichen planus, your susceptibility to periodontal disease is much higher than others. You need to be under the care of a specialist who is knowledgable about these diseases.

Did you know your blood sugar control can be affected by periodontal disease? We work closely with your physician to control your condition optimally to keep you as comfortable and healthy as possible.

Serving Our Community

At Fetner & Hartigan, we feel very blessed and have always felt compelled to “pay it forward” whenever we can. Here are a few of the ways we try to repay the community and the profession in thankfulness for what we have been given!
